I am attempting to drape my first dress block using my new adjustable form.
I have draped the fabric, inserted darts and drawn all over the muslin. I just want to check something, when I have taken the muslin off the form, the centre back and centre front lined are straight, but the side seam lines are CURVED. I was thinking of tidying them up with a French curve, but I wonder should the seam lines also be straight?
If so, I’ll start again. My block should be fairly straightforward as I’m a B-cup UK size 10-12.
Many thanks in advance
